The morning started out with Brenton Honeychurch giving a message from Joshua 5:13-15, explaining that God reveals himself divinely, progressively, and seasonably. One thing that stood out was a quote (which I couldn’t tell you the source of… perhaps you can enlighten me): “I have met the enemy and it is me.”
Additional morning sessions were given by Nabeel Zaydan of Faith Baptist Church, Croydon Park and by Ron Comfort.
The afternoon was packed with a three hour youth session jam full of preaching, singing, and testimonies. Kevin Currell, Chris Hustler, and Phil Pinero each challenged the 200+ young people to not waste their lives pursuing things that are of no value. Testimonies were given by Mrs. Kauffman and by Jeremy and Elizabeth Pinero. Jeremy and Elizabeth each gave stories of how God had worked in their lives through previous NBF meetings just like this one and gave a practical and poignant challenge to make our parent’s God our God.
